Mildenhall Library will reopen in the new Mildenhall Hub on Sheldrick Way at 10am on Tuesday 1 June.
The library will be the first service to open in the new building. Once fully open, as well as being the new home of the library, the Mildenhall Hub will bring together a new school, leisure facilities, a health centre, advice functions and a children’s centre, and will also house desk space for Suffolk Police, West Suffolk Council, Suffolk County Council and the NHS, including Public Health England.
The library will initially be open Monday to Saturday 10am to 3pm. Once the hub is fully open from 14 June, library opening times will be increasing significantly to over 100 hours a week and it will be open every day.
The final stages of the work have been delayed slightly but West Suffolk Council have now confirmed the public opening dates for the new facilities at the multi-million-pound Mildenhall Hub.
Bruce Leeke, CEO of Suffolk Libraries, said:
“We’re very excited about moving to the Mildenhall Hub. You can’t miss us as the library sits at the heart of the development, offering a flexible and contemporary space. We take pride in our strong roots in the local community and look forward to working with other Hub partners to make the library even more than the sum of its parts. Libraries are a gateway to so much and we want to take this opportunity to encourage even more people to use our services and enjoy our diverse range of activities.”
Please be aware that the number of people allowed in at any one time will initially have to be restricted and other COVID safety procedures will be in place. When the hub opens there will still be some work taking place in the car park and around the bus stop and some landscaping works will now have to take place later in the year.
The full address for the new library will be Mildenhall Library, Mildenhall Hub, Sheldrick Way, Mildenhall, Suffolk, IP28 7JX.
